I would estimate that very much fewer than 95% of current PC users are looking forward to Windows 8 (unless you mean they are looking forward to *avoiding* it <g>), and Win8 has quite a ways to go before it will pass Windows 7 or even XP in marketshare.

In fact Windows 7 marketshare is increasing as businesses continue to migrate from Windows XP to Windows 7. After support for XP is finally discontinued on April 8, 2014 most businesses (and business users) will continue to use Windows 7 until at least Windows 9 or 10 are released, skipping over Windows 8 in the process (just like they previously skipped over Vista). Windows 8 will likely never challenge Windows 7 for marketshare, just like Vista never even remotely challenged XP.

That would be currently incorrect (it's not even close), however for the most part Android does seem to be slowly gaining on Apple in the Mobile/Tablet space. Scott.

I wonder how affordable Windows 7 will be in 2014. Will it even be available at the retail level?

It will most likely remain at the same $140 price (Win7 Pro OEM) from the same sources (e.g. NewEgg) as today. Scott.

95% of windows users thank their lord for a tablet version able to synchronise floorlessly with xp/vista/7/8

My galaxy tab 10.1 cost me £ 300 from pc world
I had to send off a cashback form saying i was a student to get £ 50

I bought a 32 gig sd card and a adaptor kit ...
Low powered usb adaptor and sd card for digital cameras
32 gig card made by samsung £20
Sd card and low powered usb adaptor ( kit ) 2 adaptors £ 10



I lovethe device yet i cannot understand why a basic android user
Guide exist DOES NOT EXIST




A book that tells me that i can move or rename files or folders
Back and forward via the sd card, ext sd card, and usb stick, andrd

BY SIMPLY TOUCHING THE FOLDER OR FILE ALLOWING IT
TO STICK LIKE A POSTAGE STAMP TO YOUR FINGER AND MOVING IT

I had to work out ice cream sandwich ( myself )
Why has not anyone wrote a basic guide
Thank my lord i keep an eye on this website

If your bored pm me invest some money and write and upload
A first time users guide to android ice cream sandwich

!!!!!!!!!!! PS I KNOW LOTS ABOUT I T !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

typed on a galaxy tablet 10.1 happy new year hope 2013 brings you luck
As well as my love......

Scott, do you think fear is motivating businesses to switch from XP to Windows 7?

No, the motivating factors are that MS will stop supporting XP in April 2014, and that most companies want to support as few different OS as possible. Scott.

Man, that means less clout for those who want MS to extend the deadline!
